Glass Film keeps windows protected during painting
I am painting the exterior of my home. What type of protection exists to keep the glass in my windows free of over-spray and paint drips?
Answer: Bar none, the best thing you can do to keep your windows nice and clean during painting is to cover them with a self-adhesive glass film/ Glass Plastic that is made specifically for glass. It is quite a job to get paint off a window pane after it gets covered. The biggest mistake people make is to take a razor blade to the paint in hopes of scrapping it off. What can result is a scratched or etched window glass. Of course you can have the glass professionally buffed, but that is much more expensive than taking the proper precaution before your windows are spattered with paint.Glass Plastic
from Global Plastic Sheeting is made specifically to go on windows both inside and outside. Depending on the length of the job will determine if you want the standard Glass Plastic, or the one year version that can be left on for a year. This glass film is made with a special UV additive that keeps the sun and its rays from destroying the plastic. While the glass film comes in both blue and clear, you may want to consider the clear so that your interior won't take on a blue hue! Both the clear and blue window films hold up just as well as each other. When the job is finished, just pull off the Glass Plastic and dispose of it. What is left are nice and clear windows.
